Tracing the IP address of the message's origination seems to contravene your premise that 'under normal circumstances that's pretty tame stuff'. If not, then why run the I.P. address?

And what really happened THIS time to Rob Guarino at KVOA?
Do you remember maybe 20 years ago when the KVOA reporter tried to do a story about over-worked and under-paid nurses, but couldn't quite get the combination right. After they cut back to Patty, an "Oh, f***" was heard loud and clear in the background.
"We are sorry the inappropriate article aired on KGUN9.."
I thought "article" referred to the printed word and "story" was used in both print and broadcast.
Anyway, this might make me actually tune into KGUN to see if it happens again. Otherwise, I can't think of any reason to watch that faltering station.
That mistake evidently cost the newscast producer his job... not the editor who cut the sound bite.
While we're on the meterological tangent...KVOA & Guarino's situation?
I have always wondered why Nixon didn't regularly have his own (radio) show: he was funny, interesting, quick...maybe he didn't want one. I've always thought stations would have gone after him (over many, many others...including me!).
The Tucson Oddity series was dopey and will have no effect whatsoever on circulation. We have enough - well earned - negative Tucson stereotypes.
There are some of us who don't want to pay for radio...which is why we end up with the s#!t we have on-air right now!
People still listen to that antiquated appliance called a radio?
That dude on the Jazz Satellite Network sounds drunk half the time. Who knows when he recorded the shows, last week, last year? He never provides any context. Sure wish the evening show was still produced locally.
Jazz has always ranked among the least listened to formats in the U.S. The format's saving grace is that ratings are not only based on total number of listeners but also how long they listen. Basically, five people listen to jazz but they listen for a looooooong time.
Since they don't "play" in the ratings game...how does KUAZ AM/FM rank amongst the commercial stations? Any clue what sort of listenership they draw (other than during fundraising times)>
For some really good jazz, tune to 91.5 KJZZ from Phoenix, Blaise Lantana won't ever steer you wrong.
Meanwhile, I really want to know if anyone, whomsoever, listens to the lousy jazz KUAZ plays every evening from about 7PM to what seems like forever?
Yeah, not a lot going on I guess?? Last week was much more entertaining.
Seven paragraphs this week. Is that ALL?
Sierra Vista Herald called out for poor-taste feature:
Several years ago I was a student with the U of A Journalism department and remember several of the gay students complaining about Chuck's unwanted passes at them in various bars near campus. Maybe the queen of weather has gotten himself mixed up with something stronger than he can handle. I am not judging here, just more speculation, which seems to be what Tucson journalism is all about.
Guarino could KILL someone as a drunk driver, Vazquez is a white collar 'criminal.'
Anyone need details about DUI, just ask my partner was the VICTIM of a drunk driver in 1972 and lives with it EVERY DAY.
KVOA is a joke anyway.
You can read about Chuck George's June 2011 extreme-extreme DUI on a state court website:
Case number M-1041-TR-10071180
Miraculously the charge was dismissed.
When was Jackie Kain let go? Need a date, dude.
Daniel Berk needs to lose about 50 pounds, minimum. Saw him "covering" (mostly viewing Twitter, Facebook and cruising other internet sites instead of heads-up watching) a game once and... wow. Plumbers grin very visible. Just sayin'.
